Fuchsia Variety to ID please!

  • Fuchsia Variety to ID please!

Can anyone identify this Fuchsia variety please. Mum bought it back in the 70's & its moved house x3's reliably hardy. Though usually knock down to the ground by frost most years. Many thanks I have tried for years scouring varieties searching for it! The closest match is 'purple patch' but this I think is a relatively new variety?

    Try var Mrs popples which looks like your picture and has been around a long time.

    Yes I agree with that my wife always refers to it as her Moms fuschia

    Thank you but I have recently bought Mrs Popple variety, although similar the flowers & leaves are appear distinctly different. I'll try when it's light to put the two together for a comparative photo to see what you think. Thanks again Clive

    Sorry still awaiting buds to open on Mrs Popple.

    I would have said "Mrs Popple" without hesitation! It's been around for so long, and is so reliable, comes back every year: one of my favourites. Is it possible that the one you bought recently might have been labelled "Mrs Popple" but is actually a modern cultivar?

    Mrs Popple is the first buds opening, tried to get buds opening on the one I'm not sure of. Wondered whether it could be 'Brutus' or 'Dr Foster' or another either way I'm fairly sure they are different? Shame a lot of varieties look so similar.
